Has anybody tried putting a different back cover on the 4S, I found a few covers that I like but they say to only be compatible with the iPhone 4
I still can't post link but I found it at ecaseshop .com

Back panels for the Verizon 4 fit the 4S. I've used iphone4parts and can recommend. They also have "coming soon" set for 4S parts, but I ordered two Verizon 4 backs and they both fit fine on my 4S.

Do you know if the Verizon is different than the AT&T? Personally, I find the whole issue with different carriers having different size stuff is ridiculous..

I'll have to check out that site.. I am on AT&T and just wonder if a Verizon one would fit an AT&T phone.



Nevermind.. I just found on that site the link to the AT&T stuff... :eek:

I've ordered from CNN a few times -- only complaint I have is the items come from overseas so they take a while to get here and they have to be signed for at delivery.

Yup... that is a drawback to the site... but they typically have good products.

The backs have different clips .. So the Verizon won't work on AT&T and vis versa I think it's do too the phones antennas and lay out that are diff between the AT&T 4 and Verizon 4

Exactly... and also the reason V iP4 backs fit any of the 4S models (as far as I know) is because the 4S chasis is based on the V iP4

Please do... I know the V iP4 fits the AT&T iP4S... but it would be nice to know for sure for all the different models

All 4s are the same so Verizon backs will fit 4s not iPhone 4 AT&T backs because we know those are diff

So, from all this.. the AT&T 4 back cover "should" fit the AT&T 4S? Is that what I am reading here? Pelligro911.. throw some commas and punctuation in there, so it makes it easier to read your comments... please? :) Sometimes I get confused with what you are saying... All good information for sure, but hard to decipher sometimes. thx...

There seems to be some discrepancy between information....

So has anyone used a IP4 back cover (any carrier) on an ATT 4S...successfully?? If so, where was it purchased?

Sorry I kinda ramble ,

Someone stated that the iPhone 4 Verizon back fits the 4S , if this is true , we know for a fact that the iPhone 4 AT&T back doesn't fit the iPhone 4 Verizon
Based on this information any AT&T backing will not fit any 4S remember all 4S are the same regardless of carrier ...

I will put a end to all this .. I'll take the back off my 4S ... And see if my Verizon iPhone 4 original back works .. Then I will try to put a after market AT&T on my 4S
I will let you know why or why not with pics
